after geth elected as president of the united states and serving four years bark obama walked out on the stage and said i am black, i can't take on the white guy. whether in sports or music or acting some days you don't have the juice. we squeezed out what we could and i will offer my humble and accurate assessment of the efirst of all mitt romney countering what the obama came pair is saying about his tax proposal. >> i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true ask keep - and keep on repeating it and hope i believe it >> this was brilliant. first of all by envoking the story of his sons, it brought the sense of connection of mitt romney as a father and he raised kid more like us in that regard. countering the criticisms of mitt romney. that showed a connection and his boys had told him . let's say funny business like every body does to their partner, that said yeah, it must be normal in the romney house. but then the subtle was he was saying, you know, it doesn't matter if you are my son house or president. if you keep telling me something ov
plans for next year. and someone here says, this is why. >> you know the phrase you always use, obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, guess what? yes, we do in one regard. we want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all of that money going to the super wealthy. >> so, are promises of massive tax hikes, taxing the jobs market? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears, here they are, bulls and bears this week, gary b smith, tobin smith, jonas max ferris, along with julian epstein and larry, talk about future tax hikes, holding back a jobs recovery? >> that's right, that's right, brenda. well, you know, certainly for consumers that are work being that have 401(k) plans they may be feeling more confident these days, but their employers don't share the optimism. they're worried what's ahead and what's ahead are future tax increases, for small business owners still, these are people that own delis and dry cleaners and pave your driveways, not fat cats and million fairs and billionaires, they'
w. bush did in 2005, because of katrina. when obama did it, a year ago, it was because of libya. and in each case, price the went down significantly. i don't think the obama administration will do it now because it will look too political and might actually be political if they were to do it, but i would note that gas prices are starting to come down from where they had been and romney, who is blaming obama for the increase in gas prices is not giving obama any credit for the gas prices actually going down. >> all right. jonas? >> i think that the government could make money trading this thing, and in charge of the spr. and sell at $100 a barrel and announce you're going to drill in the public lands and-- i'm saying that's not the job of government and moreover a political thing wouldn't become a thing it make money, it'd be to drive prices down before the election. and for the iran situation, that's probably what it's for an old-fashioned concept we don't use it because people don't like $4 gas, gas is going to get more expensive every year because there's less of it. get use t
to his critics. the scary thing about president obama, four years in office and he doesn't listen. >> adam, want to go to you for the last word. >> well, mitt romney's had a lot of critics, you have to listen when it's in your own party as gerri was saying and the republican party was like, it's like some sort of weird sort of thing, and personality and-- >> and everyone agrees. >> i don't disagree, charlie. >> let me tell you everyone agrees that mitt romney played the rope-a-dope game perhaps too long and he did come out fighting and i think it reinvigorated a lot of people aen certainly should have an impact on the money. how much we'll find out. by the way, guys, did you see this? >> this is a man who has shown throughout his life, a life of integrity, a life of honor, a man with a moral compass, with a bed rock of principles. >> we need you, we need you. >> so who do we need? >> cavuto, of course. and his all-star coverage of next week's vice-presidential debate. now, it's going to kick off at 4 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel and then 8 p.m. on the fox business network
.com. o obama and his liberal allies? we can't afford four more years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> you are watching abc 7 news at 6:30. >> the pharmacy that distributed the steroid linked to the deadly fungal meningitis has issued a voluntary recall. the announced their decision today. it spans nine states including maryland and virginia and has killed at least seven. u.s. health officials reported an additional 27 cases today increasing the total number to 91. >> taking a look at vote 2012. both candidates taking an opportunity to get out on the campaign trail. romney spent the day in florida trying to boost his chances in that critical swing state. obama is that a campaign events in california. on the sunday talk show circuit there were still talking about the debate. >> we had a good week. we need to have a good one this began the week after. >> i will not take away from his masterful performance. he did a superb acting job. he did everything but learn to tap dance. >> up next on the debate calendar, a vice presidential debate face-off. >> venezuelan imm
, i heard, on that debate stage, was the barack obama i have been listening to now for four years. he sounded very much like himself. i don't think he was terribly bad. i think he has a very weak case and i think the circumstances in the country present the challenging candidate with all kinds of opportunities. mitt romney was on his game and took advantage of those opportunities. the president is saddled with weak circumstances and therefore a weak case and it's not surprising to me that he didn't argue it very well and the other thing is, despite the -- his reputation as being a world cass orator, and maybe he is with' set speech but there is not a lot of evidence he was a great debater and put them together an i don't think it is as big a shock as the president's supporters on the left feel. i think they thought he was ten feet tall and he's not ten feet tall and never has been. >> chris: mara, about the specific issue of -- doing fact checking of romney and continue to press. i don't think it is accurate, the $5 trillion tax cut, they talk about, well in fact the place will cut pe
, in five years. so, they are lower now than when president obama took office. so it is all about middle class security and security in your home, secy in your jobs and we are making progress. >> chris: but governor, at 7.8%, what it is as of friday, no president has been reelected with unemployment this high since fdr back in 1940. no president has been elected with growth this low. it is now 1.3%, for the second quarter. with growth this low, since they started measuring gdp growth in 1930. by historical standards, this is still a very weak recovery. >> without a doubt. we still have a long way to go and speaking of fdr, no president since him was left bigger job losses, bigger unemployment and bigger deficits and more wars than president obama, was, by the failed policies of george w. bush. which resulted in directly, the greatest job losses since fdr. this is not easy and it is hard work but we are moving forward. >> let's talk about policies. we didn't hear in the hour and 25 minutes of debate anything about the stimulus package. if you look at the policy the trickle-down government
conceded that president obama has to be successful in order for you to take back the house this year? -- do you concede that president obama has to be successful in order for you to take back the house this year? >> yes. in 2010, when the republicans won the house, they were up over 70 in the generics. we are now up about four or five in the combined generics. if the president does well, we do well. the president can do very well in states where we can run up the score, new york and illinois and california. he does not add -- i don't think he believes he can win in texas, but we can win more seats in texas. our game plan is built to fit into the environment and we need a lot of success by the president to enhance their chances of getting those 25 seats. >> i will ask a question that will allow you to not come off as a politician and take a stand on an issue that really concerns your constituents right now. i want you to know if you think it is time for a team to go -- if it is time for tim tebow to start planning for the new york jets. >> i can ask you -- i can answer any question you ask a
, which will pump $400 million to $450 million into the race like four years ago. obama here, romney here, outside groups on behalf of romney evening it up, and labor comes in like this. the president will out spend mitt romney. lou: when you talk about the gorilla there, it's not just union money, but ground forces going to work. are you satisfied that governor romney has a sufficient ground force ready to meet what will be a daunting ground operation on the part of the president obama? >> well, i don't know state-by-state, but i have talked to some of the people involved in some of these states who are old political hands and know what's going on. in ohio, they are already blowing through the 2004 bush ground game metrics with one exception -- voter registration. you have -- neither party's done a good job on registration this year. yeah, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, i mean, all the reports you hear from people paying close tension to it is that the ground game is big, massive, and strong on the republican side, and let's be honest, it's going to be big and massive on the democratic side
on that note with the obama campaign since they've had four years ago time to test it and now they have four years later, is it any innovative or different techniques that are using now anymore that you could -- >> guest: these programs are really the thing. they have been used in small airways by some institutions, afl-cio, emily's list over the years your in certain states, but using them in a presidential campaign as he obama campaign has this year is a major advance. part of the problem with the way that people have tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asked some of who they support, and it tells them a bunch of defamation and to ask. >> into sport and you see anybody those. before you ask directly if i told you that mitt romney hasn't paid taxes for x number of years, would it make you more or less likely to vote for him? some% of people either move when they hear that a mesh or they tell you they wouldn't. people telling you that they would move is a pretty sort of conjectural thing. i wouldn't cognitive growth anyone who told you what they would do under hy
after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manufacturing a war because global international banks and their lackeys have bankrupted the world. derivatives are nothing more than leverage. you have a situation where if you look and research it, the city of london which is one square mile in the heart of london which is not even governed by the laws of eng

it came to jobs and the e commune, he doesn't have anything to add to what he's doing the last four years. >> reporter: in the white house weekly address, president obama touted the count -- the country's unemployment rate in september. >> and on friday, we learned the unemployment rate is at the lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are getting jobs. >> reporter: president obama in cleveland trapped governor romney's tax plan. >> mr. romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for. we're not going let that happen. >> no. >> reporter: the president has no public events today and is off celebrating 20 years of marriage with the first lady. the campaign announced a huge fund raising hall for september totaling $181 million. republicans have yet to report their september totals. >> we're in it to win it. >> yeah! >> reporter: ann romney dropped in on campaign volunteers in orlando this afternoon. >> and we got to win. we have to win. >> we are going win florida. i will predict that. >> thank you. >> a recent gallop poll
was successful. nor does i think the romney side think sometimes what they accuse obama of. you cannot take this seriously. this is a political year, there's a campaign going on. they will try to do anything they can and especially the other groups out there who paint each other in the most horrible way, that's the way politics is. and for some reason or the other, negative ads play better than positive ads. therefore, you will always play the negative ads. >> i know you haven't decided who you're going to vote for in four weeks' time, but right now, if you had to vote tomorrow, who would you vote for? >> i have to first listen to the debates and then -- >> so they're that important to you. >> it's very important. to me, the debates were absolutely important. there were times when i made a decision way before, like president bush, because of the relationship of the kind of things that he has done for california, for instance, the kind of working relationship that we had and the history and also with senator mccain, i jumped in as soon as he declared because he has been a friend. and he has
meant to say the last 10 years, and it came out wrong. this is fodder for the obama campaign. it will not change, i do not think, in a huge way, the course of events, buthere is no question the obama campaign folks, every time biden is out there, they are nervous about what he is going to say, how it comes out. they would prefer to have barack obama cleaning up barack obama this week, rather than joe biden cleaning up barack obama. >> what do you think? the vice presidential debate is coming up. >> it just so happens joe biden and paul ryan respect each other and get along well. those two were the ones that had allhe protestants. i think this will be a fun debate, and enjoyable debate. joe biden has a good sense of humor. you are not going to see him paint barack obama in his debate. >> i hope it is more interesting. yes, there were 50 million people calling the first debate, and the question i have is, for how long? i was sitting there thinking, ok, obama did not show up to play, and this is unbelievably borig. if i did n havto do this for a living, i would turn on a show i
a year after obama took office. three things happen. the first was from the united states supreme court. i think no person in the united states i can think of has benefited more from the supreme court of karl rove. two decisions. one in 2000 obviously with bush v. gore put his candidate in the white house and two, in 2010, citizens united decision. that opened the floodgates for contribution -- unlimited contributions. in many cases from secret sources is no transparency with the weather, that is just unprecedented in history. the second thing that happened with michael still running the applicant party instead of running it in to ditch and he couldn't raise the time and it came to his favor early in 2010. you may recall there was a revelation in los angeles that the republican national committee has been entertaining at at a lesbian bondage themed strip club. this did not work well, so they could not raise a dime. this gave for his opening. so he had a luncheon at his house in the weaver terrace. it was cohosted by a lsp, a former chair of the arun the senate had about two dozen people
for president and does obama is the improvement in the re-election year is where presidents get re-elected. >> the real world peggy alluded to. real medium incomes have fallen twice as much under the obama recovery as they did in the bush recession. at this point in time under ronald reagan's policies, which governor reagan has a 21st century application of jobs grew at five types the rate they are. the states with 17 golfers, republican golfers instituted reforms. those states are growing their economy and creating jobs at twice the rate the national one is. this is about policies. we know they've worked. there is no recovery in the history of any recessions or depressions that have been as slow and as poor as this one and the rescissions upwards -- >> yes, it does, dr. krugman. it's completely totally true. >> i don't make up numbers. >> well, but just look at them then. the fact of the matter is this is actually a fairly typical slow post-financial crisis recovery which is picking up speed so although it's terrible and i've been bitterly critical of policymakers in general for n
the last four years and he will say barack obama made a lot of promises in 2008 and hasn't kept the promises. they don't worry about their are guy being likeable and say the key is to stay on offense. the other battle over the plans for the next four years where o obama will be tough on romney and say this is a guy who wants to give tax cuts to the wealthc and to voucherrize medicare. romney will say he is the defender of the middle class. t both sides say this could get heated tonight. >> chris, thank you. >> good evening. >> we go to jim lehrer of pbs moderating this debate. >> i'm jim lehrer and welcome you to the first of the 2012l presidential debates between president barack obama the democratic nominee and former, massachusetts governor mitt romney the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential, are sponsored byo the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15 minute segments with two minutt answers f
horrible year which you can't mram president obama for in totality his first year that he inherited this big mess. now it's down to 7.8%. doesn't that show that he is on the right trajectory and kind of undermining the central argument for you? >> oh, i don't think so. you know, it's like this, candy. if you are getting blown out in a football game but you are scoring field goals once a quarter, you can't point to the three points every quarter and say at least we're scoring some points. we're still getting clobbered. the fact of the matter is the president and joe biden are getting clobbered on policies they put in place. we're nowhere close. i was in wisconsin yesterday. been in ohio practically of other day. i'll tell you what, people in kenosha, wisconsin, and ohio don't feel better off today than they were four years ago, and they don't think this president has been very good at following through on his promises. that's what this is going to come down to, and i'll tell you what, last week you saw the difference. an unfiltered mitt romney and an unfiltered barack obama. you saw
. >> four years ago, barack obama i had his back. he invest speak to me. now i hear the sam rhetoric i heard four years ago. >> reporter: still there are 400,000 latino votes in play across the state. both sides courting them heavily. >> translator: mr. president, how are you? >> that's mr. president speaking to a radio show last might reaching latinos across the state. you find yourself in the middle of presidential politics. tell me about that. >> i think it underlines the importance of the hispanic population. >> as for governor romney everyone but the candidate himself so far has been on the show. with a margin of victory here to be tiny, both sides want to win over businessmen like sergio. >> we met in may, you were undecided voter then. today? >> still am. >> how is that possible? >> well, i haven't heard from any of the candidates anything that would make me choose one of them right now. >>. >> reporter: he doesn't believe either candidate can do much to improve the economy, but he's waiting for one of them to say something concrete about how to fix immigration. >> i have friends with
and since then, the obama campaign, they remind me a little bit of a 7-year-old losing a checker game and then instead of being frustrated at the outcome, they sweep the board off the table. the fact is is that if president obama's re-elected, as governor romney pointed out, we'll have continued chronically high unemployment, we're going to have continued massive debt instead of moving toward a balanced budget. we've had this week the fourth trillion dollar deficit under this president, health care premiums are going to continue to rise. up to 20 million americans will lose their employer-based health insurance under obama care, and they'll raise $716 billion from medicare. governor romney has a different approach that would move the country in the right direction and that's what they're frustrated about. >> let's talk about that approach and get to the bottom of this disagreement. governor romney says he will not increase the deficit with his tax cuts. he's saying he will not increase taxes on the middle class, so is he saying that if he cannot come up with enough loopholes and deduc
about the election. >> the obama campaign, they remind me a little bit of a seven-year-old losing a checker game and instead of being frustrated at the outcome they sweep the board off the table. it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointeted d in the expectations that he has for himself. >> tonight the anticipation growing, about the one and only debate between the vice-presidential nominee. gas prices may be high in your hometown, but they just hit a record in one state, and keep climbing. could what's driving up the cost in california happen closer to you? and a driver plows right into a liquor store, whoa. imagine being one of the people inside. and watching that struck get away. ♪ >> i'm harris falkner, we begin tonight in florida, with the republican presidential nominee for president spending a third straight day in that state which is up for grabs. governor mitt romney at an earlily in port st. lucie and he has a major address on foreign policy tomorrow at the virginia military institute and then the governor making a promise about taxes. >> a
president four years ago, instead of barack obama, things have been different, you could have been if you had been born here. who knows. if you had been, do you honestly think you could have done any better than barack obama has done, inheriting such a huge financial mess? is the reality that whoever took over was going to be pretty much where he is now? what do you think? >> we maybe would have done things a little differently, but i can guarantee you that the president is doing everything that he can to solve the problems. i cannot imagine that president obama is sitting there and saying to himself, let me not fix this or let me have this fail. there's no such thing. i think that when you sit in this office like i sat as governor in my office, you work and you worry about those things day and night. many times you have sleepless nights and you worry about those things and you try to solve it. it's not that easy. it is a very, very difficult job. i think he has done as good of a job as he could do. he did it his way and they did it their way. i think that mitt romney has done a great job
. i think obama needs two terms to prove what he can do. >> i think about that. four years is probably never enough for anybody to do very much as president. if you come in, the first thing you do is get a whole new staff, you start to bring in policies. then just at the moment they're coming to fruition, you're in or out. eight years seem to me unless the president incumbent is so useless he has to go, really you need that length of time. >> i agree. and like we were saying backstage, if it wasn't for the 22nd amendment is it that bill clinton would be president again because he obviously knows what he's talking about and people feel confident with him. but i do believe in barack obama. i do believe his message. i haven't lost faith in him. and i think that, you know -- it's not an easy thing to do. nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. you don't know what job you're getting into hosting a show like this. we're not having a huge impact. i mean, you are, i guess. >> you have a huge impact. >> i have a huge impact with young girls, young wom
that romney ran all over obama. from a small business owner's perspective he addressed the issues we have not seen addressed offer the laugh four years. most notably, how are we going to get this economy growing again because from a small business owner's perspective, that is what is going to get them hiring and make them more successful. if the economy grows, more people are buying from them. there's more confidence, and it is just a self fulfilling prophecy. >> what we are dealing with here, four years -- apart from what president obama is saying on there, what we have seen is that small business is struggling and we are way, way at the end of the food chain. we have banks that can't fail. $700 billion going into who knows what. snail gardens in san francisco. it is harder today because of rules like dodd-frank to get money from a bank. small banks are failing. we lost 2,000 of them in the last two or three years. that's where businesses go to get the personal loan based on my personal credibility. those are gone, and that's why we need a change. >> when you listen to them debate and yo
't afford four more years. >>> from the obama campaign, an ad targeting mitt romney's plan, and calling it just an act. >> why was romney so dishonest about his plan? the massive new tax cut for millionaires means higher tax cuts for the middle class, and aarp says romney's plan undermines medicare by turning it into a voucher. we have real challenges to meet. children to educate, a class to rebuild. >> one more note within this past hour, the president left on a two-day campaign swing through california, on a campaign effort, how else do you think they pay for those ads? >> hey, you don't miss much, do you, alex? >> talking about the unemployment number, we also saw a strong debate, still about the debate. >> well, you know it is a good thing for the president's supporters and they're looking forward to it. he gets two more bites of the apple, when vp paul ryan goes up against joe biden, and candidates have less and less tried to paint it as a victory, nobody agrees with it. and david axelrod said the president let mitt romney get away with too much. the president is his own worst crit
that to be a point of contention at the debated a week from tuesday, as well. the obama campaign saying the romney performance last wednesday was a performance. romney campaign saying the obama campaign is behaving like a seven-year-old kid playing checkers. he wipes the board off the table. >> gregg: reminds me of elementary school, liar, liar, pants on fire. we could go on and on. john roberts, thanks so much. >> air force one expected to touchdown in los angeles any moment. president heading to a private event followed by a campaign 30 days to victory concert at nokia theater in los angeles. it will be packed with celebrity supporters. president will make remarks along with actor and sinsel town george clooney and musical performances by many celebrities we'll get a live report a bit later on. >> heather: political battle breaking out over the number one issue this election season, jobs. on friday. the labor department reporting that the unemployment rate for september was right there, 7.8%. the obama campaign out to that go number to show that the recovery is picking up steam, but republicans
. >> so michelle obama may have been married to her husband for 20 years, but in that clip from the dnc, joe biden's making a strong case for his position as the number two most devoted person to president obama. if his words weren't clear enough, let me state it plain. joe biden hearts barack obama. we will no doubt see evidence of that bromance unfold thursday night. on the other hand, mitt romney's put paul ryan in the position where he has to defend statements like this. >> . >> so it feels like passionate romance and a marriage of convenience here between these two. is that the key thing that a vp has to be is basically champion for his principal? is that what people are looking for in the vp debate? >> unless the vp think they don't have much of a shot. in which case he has to think ahead to the next election cycle. it's clear to me what's what paul ryan is doing. so he should be. >> the interesting thing here, way back when they put ryan on the ticket, i thought i understood why. i thought the calculation was romney looked and said all summer long, i've been behind. this isn't bu
